1:00 am
and proscribed by state law. the code says the rate that we should be using the risk rate we should be using depending on the property type so before you have two sheets, a summary page and a detailed evaluation page. i would like to walk you through the detailed evaluation page and point out where the change was made. we began estimating what the market rent would be for the buchanan street. from that market rent we subtracted and allowable vacancy and collection loss. we subtracted some operating expenses that should be allowed for the property to approve at the net income. the change was made in the risk factor. for over occupied buildings it's 4%. for all other property types the risk factor is 2%. our initial
1:01 am
evaluation used 4% for the entire property. we were -- that's incorrect because part of the property is owner occupied so we applied the 4% risk rate to the owner occupied portion of the rate and 2% for the non owner occupied portion of the property. this resulted in evaluation being adjusted to .29 95. and the second handout is the revised summary page. the three prong test as you can see and the current assessed value is listed here and result in taxes of approximately $19,000. based upon the three prong test the lower of the values, the restricted value, which is 1.1 million, and the factory
1:02 am
facta value and $2 million and the value should be as listed here and results in tax savings of approximately $6,000 and i am here to answer any questions you may have. >> thank you. colleagues do we have any questions? thank you very much. mr. rose can we go to the budget analyst report please. >> yes mr. chairman and members of the committee, on page 20 of the report and i'm going to use the revised numbers which were just stated. >> thank you. >> and table two and page 20 of our report the first annual property tax is paid to the city by the property owners would be 5991 would be the specific
1:03 am
amount or 33% less than the $19,000 which the department referenced. that amount stays the same. that's the estimated property taxes which are otherwise paid to the city so if the proposed property agreement is not authorized that would be -- they would not receive that reduction. if the -- the total amount over the 10 year period and as the supervisors know the mills act is a 10 year agreement. at the end of 10 years it will automatically renew unless either the board of supervisors or the property owners requests that it be not continued, so over the first initial 10 years if you use the number of 5991 which is the reduction in the first year the total estimated reduction would be at least 59,000 and 10 times that amount and that would be
1:04 am
adjusted over the 10 year period. now, we also point out that the total estimated cost to the property owner of rehabilitating and maintaining buchanan street over the initial 10 year period over this act which is 667,000. our recommendation on page 21 corrects the numbers regarding the rehabilitation, so that our recommendation specifically is to amend the proposed mills act historical property agreement to reflect that the actual costs have been occurred for work included in the rehabilitation program with a total of 636949, an estimated expenditures expected upon completion instead of the estimated included and that you approve the amendment.

report that the total estimated expenditures for insurance prumiums under the agreement in 14-15 are listed on the report page 52 and on page 53 of our report we point out that given that the risk management division cannot fully anticipate all future insurance needs we believe that there should continue to be a constituency and we have estimated that at $500,000 a year or a million dollars a year so that the total estimated cost of the insurance is shown as page 54 in table four would be 19 million. our recommendations on the bottom of
1:09 am
page 54 we recommend that you do the resolution for approval and provide for additional two year options and the agreement through 2019. amend the proposed resolution to reduce the contract by one month and terminate on june 2015 instead of the other date and the resolution not to exceed amount listed from 22 million to 19. 5 million which includes the $1 million constituency and we recommend that you approve this resolution as recommended. >> thank you mr. rose. colleagues any questions for mr. rose. thank you very much. we will open it up for public comment? seeing none public comment is closed. okay colleagues we have a --

1:12 am
transactions we believe that are in the money there is a possibility that the city could issue two of the three and knowing it's the third transaction and the van ness building could be delayed to policy considerations. with that you're also approving a document that is updated to reflect the recent documents including the five year financial plan as well as the proposed budget, but it would be need to be updated to reflect the recently adopted budget for the 2013-14 and 14-15 year. with that i'm -- we have supervisor -- director of real estate here who can also talk about the valuation if someone is interested. >> thank you. colleagues, any questions? okay. thank you very much mr. rose. can we go to the reports for items 16 and 17. >> yes mr. chairman and members of the committee on page 60
